The Complete Howard Hawks
The quintessential Hollywood genre professional has been recognized as such for so long that it’s hard to imagine how radical it was when French wise guys like the young Eric Rohmer declared Hawks a major artist. Opening with two crowd-pleasers, To Have and Have Not and Rio Bravo, this full retrospective offers a total immersion in the Hawksian worldview, plunging next into the master’s rarely screened silent films and thereafter meandering a-chronologically through his remarkable career.
Tickets are free with admission to the museum. A full schedule of the retrospective is available online.
